I went to Beacon's Closet for the first time over the weekend to look for some costumes. I didn't find exactly what I was looking for (how many lavender pantsuits are there out there?), but I was amazed at not only the large selection of goods but the ORGANIZATION. I was SO PLEASANT to walk through a thrift/consignment store and be able to approach the search by color without being overwhelmed by overstocked racks and shelves.
The items we did find were cheap! What a relief that consignment doesn't mean expensive.
I can't wait to go back and find some good shoes (there were even some in my size, which is rare for a 10.5)
